    Due to not having my bumper in time, i am not going to be able to run 315's... Instead im going with 295/75/16's. We'll see how they look soon! Installing my lift tonight, everything should be done by the end of the weekend.

    I love the way my 35's look on 3" of lift! They're big, but fit the size of the truck well IMO.
